One the most important parts of your zip wire kit is the spring brake.
This obviously helps to stop you from hitting the end and gives you a soft and smooth braking experience when coming to the end of your run.
Occasionally, you will find that the normally supplied 3.0m zip wire spring brake is not sufficient enough to carry out it's work of stopping you. This is normally down to the fact that the zip wire is travelling so fast.
To resolve this, we highly recommend that you use one of these 10mm - 6.0m zip wire spring brakes.
Simple and just as easy to install as the 3.0m spring brake, this 6.0m spring gives you double the stopping impact and therefore should give a smoother stopping experience.
Zip wire Brake specification:

Your zip wire cable fits through the middle of this zip wire brake and sits with the tightening bolts nearest to your receiving end. It is best to leave a 6" - 9" gap between the end where the tightening bolts are and the end of your wire. Please note:
Tightening bolts on the spring should be inspected and retighten (if needed) at every inspection
